She wore her first real dress on her 8 week mark. Still in newborn clothes, juuuust about out. We’re gonna graduate to size one ‘bipers’ here at the end of this drawerful.
That’s a big deal. She’s healthy and thriving.
Her testing came back clear of early markers for leukemia and hypothyroid. A whole healthy heart. No present concerns. She’s a perfect blue eyed baby with an extra chromie.
I’m fully upright, adjusted to her late night feedings and have shifted my minds worry from the unknown to into a whole new space.
I’m a momma who needs to gain the ability to provide an environment that supports this little ladies needs.
Revealed as we go.
I’ve never felt more on a mission, with purpose.
Grace and Ava are awesome big sisters. We’re working on our squad goals. Making necessary shifts as a family of five.
It’s NOT easy. Like, not. The logistics are stupid there’s never enough hands. Simple things take major strategy and we’re still learning the ropes course with all of it but...
I’m so grateful in so many ways to feel my head above water, without worry. The last two months were not as difficult as the worry for her life as I was pregnant. A different difficult.
I have my eyes set on possibilities for her and our family and I’m in a space of excited about it.
Stuff I know...
Time will tell
Time can heal
You can handle more than you think
Community is powerful
God hears prayers,
And answers them
Not always how we think
But in amazing unknown ways
Xoxo to all of you who routinely check in on us. This process would NOT have been he same without you, I’m certain of it and so, so grateful.
I owe a few blog posts and we’ll share our birth story live when we get our poop in a group in the evening.
Who do you think she looks like?
ETA: she loves Lauren Daigle and neighbor Pam 😂
